. if you are in new york city, schoolteachers and firemen make $100,000 a year and they are easily in households the approach the limit. it depends and where you live. among high-income people, there is a wide range of what people pay in taxes. if you're a lawyer in washington, i find them to be reasonable people who work long hours. you are probably paying 28%. if you are on wall street and you are well-connected if you have a capacity to have your income defined as investment as opposed to salary even though it is indeed salary income. if you are somebody like jamie dimon or warren buffet, you can get away with 14% tax. the real problem with upper individuals are not the people who pay the taxes we intend for the to pay, but all the people who get away without paying any taxes at all. those tax breaks and write offs are derived by the president and by democrats, but they never seem to get fixed. one reason is republicans do not want them fixed. and the other hand, the democrats get a lot of campaign contributions from wall street. that is a real problem on both sides of the aisle

, and in washington state, $9.19. "anything under $10 an hour is obscene. it's not enough to live in any city in the u.s." there's now a push to raise the federal minimum wage. "the minimum wage needs to be raised. it hasn't been raised in some time. we should consider indexing it to inflation." in 2004, voters in florida approved indexing the minimum wage to the cost of living. colorado voters did the same thing two years later. they are among ten states where that connection is made and where wages go up january first. in florida, the 12-cent increase, to $7.79 an hour, will benefit 210,000 workers. it'll add $370 to their annual wages and $46.2 million to florida's gdp. still, not enough, according to some. "people who work 40 hours a week need a $10-an-hour minimum wage. this is from a retailer. retail wages stink." "we see people work three jobs just to make ends meet. that's not fair." in late november, president obama met with small business owners for their input about the fiscal cliff, and the minimum wage was mentioned.
